    Jbl 4435

    I was thinking about raising my 4435's up. Since they are studio monitors what would you think would be a good height? I was thinking maybe 36" Thanks for any suggestions

    There's a nice description from one of the key design contributors here:

    http://www.audioheritage.org/html/pr...bl/4430-35.htm

    Juggling bass extension and "even-ness" with overall response and stereo imaging
    is worth a bit of experimentation, height and placement-wise. Get the horns up to ear
    level, more and you might want to consider tilting them down a bit, depending on
    your listening distance.

    I'd like to try flipping and hanging my 4430's, but that'll have to wait for a different locale.
    Enjoy 'em.

    Ranked in the top three. It's too bad there isn't a 1.5" version.

    More info !

    4313b,

    It would be great if there could be some more info in the library . It could be scaled up if the original
    dimensions were available .

    The woofer is pretty nice too ....

    I think so too. Greg designed it but never much cared for it, preferring his LE14H-1 or 2245H designs instead, but I always enjoyed the 2234H/2235H. Mark did the 136H/2231H and I always thought the 2234H/2235H was a nice upgrade. I sure liked the 136H/2231H when it was the king of the fifteens though!

    You are looking in the wrong place. Second page the problem is is when you scale it up you loose directivity control becasue the slot width changes. If you leave the slot width the same??

    bloody maths again !

    Rob,

    I kind of think I know what your saying . It would be easier to reduce than enlarge ..... I can make'm , but designing them is another ball game .... Am I correct in thinking that I would lose the loading ( compression ) on the throat !

    I'm going back to building this amp thats enough of a learning curve for the moment

    Actually, could one of the mods move this to another tread for me ?..... If you guys have the patience, I would like to learn more about the mechanics in basic terms. It might be timely considering all the horn talk here these days .

    uF
